Same idea as the Novarossi piece; just made a little differently.

Looks like Fioroni's version of the Novarossi exhaust cooler. Looks like it has some weight to it IMO. Not sure if its worth adding. The NR ones need to be mounted somewhere cool to work and would think the same applies to the Fioroni one also.

Maybe better for on road. It kinda looks like an intercooler from an import tuner.

cooling gas in the preassure line ->colder fuel ->more runtime

it is aimed at onroad cars that can struggle to get 5mins runtime.

to be usefull in offroad cars you would have to heat shield the tank as pipe is in most cases touching it

you mean cooling the hot vapor from the exhaust that creates the pressure correct??

Yes thats the idea. Gene Hickerson makes his own too, you can get them at Machinesrchobbies.com. I am shure they are cheaper and he has a few colors but I wouldnt buy 1 for offroad. Just heat shield taping your tank helps. I did it because I had melted into 2 tanks because I tried a different body and had to run my pipe closer to the tank and swear I got more runtime on that car after I put the tape on there.

LOL! That's a good one. I think these will end up going the way of the "boost bottle," in the trash can.

exhaust coolers do help with runtime.. Not a gimmick.


will it double your runtime? no.. but if your on the border of going 10 min a tank it can give you the little boost you need.

i do not know how much of a difference you would be able to tell, but hot fuel and air kill any engine....it wont hurt for sure.
